Now that we are in the hot hazy summer days of 2016 my family went looking for locally grown tree ripen peaches. This weekend we visited the local farmers market and purchased beautiful Red Haven Peaches. We love to eat peaches fresh just standing in the kitchen but I also have a taste for Peach Crisp.
As I usually do, if I don’t have a vintage recipe from my family , I pull two or three recipes off the Internet. After a little bit of research, I found a cast iron skillet peach crisp that was featured on the Today Show. I took the main recipe, tweak it to our family taste, and lowered the sugar and butter.
The finished Peach Crisp made the kitchen and house smell divine. So much that when I moved the skillet from the kitchen to take a picture, my husband was right next to me asking me what smelled so good. I knew at that moment that this recipe needed to be saved.
